Assuming they are th 2 capsules that can reenter, the. You MUST test it if you undertake a maneuver that has the atmosphere hazard

Yes, and you should, as there is no astronaut capable of dampening the outcome for Re-Entry.

Just pretend that is a monkey you have in the capsule.

Just to clarify a little further, is it correct that the ONLY way you can draw an outcome against the Re-entry technology is when a capsule capable of re-entry performs a re-entry?

This is how I have interpreted the rules, that it would not be allowed to test re-entry when trying to re-enter earth's atmosphere with a probe nor even for an Eagle lander, since that card has the automatic 'burns up' clause on re-entry.

Am I also playing correctly or are there some more ways of testing re-entry than dropping shielded capsules?
